It is very unfortunate, but I booked a family trip before the COVID pandemic exploded. I did everything through hotels.com and although the others hotels refunded, gave vouchers.. this hotel refused to do anything, knowing that a pandemic literally changed our travel plans. I have written everywhere asking for a refund a voucher and they don't even reply. Shame on you and your staff. Almost 500 euros completely stolen!

This hotel is in a great location in Marbella for everything with a car park underneath for €10 a night. The hotel had a nice pool and outdoor terrace and we got a free drink voucher on arrival which was very nice. It’s quite basic and our room did smell of smoke which I know isn’t allowed in the hotel, but you could smell it quite strongly when we arrived. Our studio was very large for 2 people with a nice little kitchenette and balcony. The bathroom was tiny and my partner could hardly sit on the toilet due to the layout. For the money this hotel is perfect if you want somewhere central what you won’t be spending much time in.
